Our one-year, full-time PGCE Secondary History course at the University of East Anglia will equip you with the skills, experience and knowledge you need to teach history to pupils aged between 11 and 16 – with the option of additional experience of A-level history teaching. Upon successful completion of your PGCE you’ll graduate with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and 90 Master’s level credits. 

Learning to become an accomplished history teacher, able to inspire pupils of all ages and abilities, is a complex and multi-faceted challenge. What’s more, the way history is taught in schools has recently aroused a lot of controversy, with many views emerging on why and how it should be done. 

Train with us and we’ll help you understand and engage with these views, and learn how to ensure that your history teaching brings together theory and practice in a practical and intellectually rigorous way. You’ll investigate ideas about the purposes and benefits of secondary school history. In an age of social media it is so important that our pupils can ask questions about who has written a source and why. At UEA you will explore the most effective teaching approaches for developing critical thinking skills in your pupils.
